SGA catalogues 272 yearlings for Select Sale

The catalogue can be viewed online at and is available on the newly launched Equineline sales catalogue app.

Celebrated SGA September graduate Rip Van Winkle adorns the front cover of this year's catalogue, which includes yearlings by the likes of Cape Cross, Dalakhani, Dubawi, Henrythenavigator, Invincible Spirit, Montjeu, Oasis Dream and Shamardal.

Among the stand-out lots on paper are a brother to Derby Italiano runner-up Permesso, an Invincible Spirit half-brother to the high-class globe-trotter Pressing, a Duke Of Marmalade half-brother to Italian 1,000 Guineas winner Silver Cup and a Holy Roman Emperor colt out of Yorkshire Oaks heroine Super Tassa.

Last year's renewal saw 170 yearlings sell - 60 per cent of those offered - for a total of €3,528,500 and average of €20,756.
